Jeffrey Dorsey

My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I moved over to WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association , including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Chiefs are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City.

Muscular Dystrophy Telethon is No More

It was September 4th, 1966 and the television world saw its first Jerry Lewis Muscular Telethon. That’s right, 49 years ago. Jerry Lewis is no longer a part of the telethon. He was asked not to return in 2011 for reasons that are still unknown today and without him, the telethon suffered. So much so, that the once 24 hour telethon was pared down to just 3 hours after Lewis was no longer a part of it and now it is no more.
